The Pit & The Pendulum
11 November 2018 - Omnibus Theatre
The main intention of this audio-visual work lacks clarity, and the fear in Poe's original is largely absent, ultimately generating a lukewarm response from the audience.
Drowned Or Saved?
10 November 2018 - Tristan Bates Theatre
An atmospheric and sometimes harrowing drama finds Primo Levi reliving his nightmare life as a prisoner at Auschwitz, described by a fine ensemble and impressively directed.
The Fire Raisers
9 November 2018 - Hen and Chickens Theatre
An enjoyably droll revival of Max Frisch's play that seeks to highlight complacency, even in the face of the glaringly obvious, and still bristles with unsettling relevance.
7 November 2018 - Tabard Theatre
A rom com, with a realistic situation though dated sitcom feel, lacks unique revelations or insights yet ticks along in an agreeably entertaining, if unexceptional way.
Billy Bishop Goes to War

An intimate, absorbing and moving play with music documenting the extraordinary real-life experiences of a Canadian flying ace during The Great War.
